Did You Know?


Her nickname, "Chachita", was accidentally introduced during her second feature film, Jalisco, Don't Backslide (1941), when the director and producer, Ismael Rodriguez, not being able to remember her given name, started to refer to her as "Muchachita"; (A term of endearment meaning "little girl"), which then was shortened to only "Chachita".
